Moths are nocturnal creatures and so are inherently mysterious. Since their intricate patterns and colors are rarely observed in casual encounters in porch light, artist Deborah Davis paints them in intimate, large view. This artist encountered each of the moths painted for her exhibit at her home near Charlottesville, Virginia.

The moths are collected, and refrigerated in order to slow them down for their photo shoot, then each is released. Davis looks forward to painting the nearly endless variety of moths found locally, hovering in the lure of porch lights on warm nights.
